On June 10, Rotary International held a special Zoom meeting for all Rotarians, requesting that everyone consider donating their lunch money to End Polio Now.  It was a livestream event of esteemed polio-eradication leaders, reminding us about the important work that still needs to be done to stop this horrible disease.
As you may know, RI has a shortfall of $15 million of our $50-million worldwide goal for to End Polio Now. To maximize our 2-to-1-match from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we need to create an opportunity for every Rotarian to give. Currently, only 9 percent of Rotarians have given to End Polio Now.
The June 10 program took about 20 minutes, and I personally found it to be very inspiring!  I am excited to tell you that it was recorded, so if you were unable to attend, you could view it by clicking here.
Because RI headquarters in Evanston, Illinois are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RI is asking for all donations to be made by June 15 (instead of June 30). 
Thank you to everyone who has donated! If you have not had the opportunity to donate, I would ask you to please consider making a donation as soon as possible.

Thank you for all you do! And remember: Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay inspired!
